Fodor's Expert Review Stella Maris Hotel

O'Connell St., Kilkee, Co. Clare, Ireland

If a town the size and scale of Kilkee can have a grande dame property, then the Stella Maris is the place; it's a handsome, charming little hotel close to the sea, with a contemporary country style. It has served the town well ever since it was constructed back in 1853 as a coast-guard regional headquarters so expect to see some old-timers lingering in the lobby or lounge. Now spruced up with a mix of plaid and impressionist art, the Stella Maris also offers excellent views and close proximity to Kilkee's horseshoe-shape beach.
